Conceived initially as an abstract radio play, the Radio Mantras are compositions based around the track “Radimantra”, lifted from Derek Piotr’s second album, Airing. Inspired both by late-night experimental radio programs and their seamless, formless fluidity, and by Sublime Frequency’s release Radio Java, Piotr set out to create non-narrative extensions of the original material, eliciting help from vocalists Carahanni and Troy Church. Additional samples of radio static were contributed by Dendrite, who originally had contributed radio samples for use on Airing. The material moves at a rhythmless pace, effectively playing off the murk of the static and electronic ether. These mantras had their premiere, fittingly, on the station Mantra Radio in February in Belgium, and have been made a feature on Resonance 104.4 FM in London. The hand-stamped CD release is limited to 100 copies, and features these three mantras alongside the original track “Radimantra” as well as remixes by producers Safety Scissors and Paul Heslin.
